Getting more in touch with the elements is getting more in touch with the seasons, both externally and internally. Earth is so grounding which can feel incredible reassuring in times of uncertainty. When we connect to earth, we feel more solid and able to withstand whatever comes our way. Earth gives us a hill to climb up on and gain some much needed perspective.
As the last leaves fall from the trees and the sky turns to the grey of winter, everything slows. It’s time for turning inward for introspection. Attuning to the rhythms of nature, the ebb and flow. I love the idea of the blend or balance of delicate with the strength and resilience of a tree heading into winter, preparing for spring. The tree knows it's time to release and let go and wait for the sun and new growth.
In my process, I draw tarot cards and contemplate their message. Then the painting flows from there.
